Choosing Between Wood and steel Caskets

Metal and wood are the two main types of caskets. Nowadays there are also green ones, made from natural, more biodegradable, products. However, the majority of people still go for either metal or wood. It is important to look at the factors you need to consider when choosing between the two.

A casket is more than just a rectangular container. It often serves as the focal point of the ceremony. It may be designed to honor the departed. Therefore aesthetics may play a role in the choice of coffin and the materials used to make it.

Wood Caskets

Wood affords the conventional look of a coffin, and is considered to have more personality than metal coffins. Those sentiments are probably more likely to be held by those who have an affinity for natural products.

There are different types of wood varieties. Each type of word has its own aesthetic personality. The main types of wood varieties may include, Walnut, Maple, Pine, Oak, Mahogany, amongst others. When buying a wood coffin, you can choose the type of finish you want. Some are highly polished, while others have a satin finish.

Steel Caskets

Steel caskets may vary in thickness and also style. The main advantage of steel is that it can be sealed to ensure no outside elements can get into the coffin. The sealer around it, is stronger than that on a wood casket.

If you are looking for unique personalization features, steel is one of the best choices. Steel coffins come in many different colors and finishes. You may choose between standard steel and stainless steel. Standard steel is more affordable. Stainless steel is considerably more expensive, it is more durable.
